Question searching in new versions

Up until the last two updates I was able to search in my library by just typing part of the authors name, or part of the title name in the search box - it would then filter for anything that matched what I had entered.

With the past two updates when I use just the search box and type it in, nothing happens - I have had to resort to using the advanced search feature - which I find a pain in the you know what.

Was this change deliberate or did I change some setting accidentally, or is it a bug?



Thanks,
Cindy

Works for me Windows and Linux
Do you have the Highlight button clicked (straight blue bars with no red slash)?

Question Suggestions not working

That is how it worked before the updates. I've attached screen shots so you can see what I mean.

I'm very puzzled.....

Take 'rating' out of preferences->search->limit ("columns that searches are limited to"). The problem is that it is illegal to search for rating:balducci, because balducci is not a number.

Isn't that a bug?
Search Strings that are inappropriate for a field should simply bypass that field.
If I search for "10"
That could be a (legacy) rating or a title (There was a movie with that name)

Both agree and disagree.

Typing rating:aaa should be an error, coloring the search bar pink. Same should be true for #somebool:hithere (which I haven't fixed yet).

However, in indirect searches like setting the limit_search, such errors should be ignored. That change is already committed in trunk.

I think we agree.

If I do a explicit search with a wrong type, I should get smacked with a error.
If I do a global or 'Limited' global, it needs to not fail just because there was a numeric field and an Alpha search string.
